Talk: How to effectively grow a development team

Developers come in all forms and sizes but putting them together doesn’t automatically transform them into a team. One of the keys to creating a successful team of developers in my opinion is a great developer culture. In this talk I will try to explain why developer culture is so important and share how we grew a developer culture for one of the biggest airports in Europe.
